Seeing in the New Year in St Ives has become a popular event and continues to grow in numbers. The common theme is people turn up in fancy dress. The event has no organisation and is entirely people driven.

Hence no official program, brochures, leaflets, how refreshing! Depending on the weather there might be bonfires on the beaches and fireworks or you just enjoy a gale that could be blowing that night.

The evening depends entirely on what you and your friends organise for yourselves, plus the buzz of being in this small fishing town packed out with all and sundry in costume having a great New Year’s Eve Party.
